Just a simple picture of an empty table from one of many restaurants along the road leading from Fira to Imerovigli.The views on the Caldera are amazing from this road.

love this! Brings back so many memories of sitting at little tables like this in the Greek islands, admiring the view and sipping local wines and Raki. Your management of the light here makes this so romantic and idyllic. A real delight and eye-catching presentation.
Enjoy the weekend - B.
Thanks for your comments today (and other days) on my 1,000th posting, really appreciated. B.

What a marvelous scenery while sipping afternoon coffe, Krzysztof, or maybe something like Uzo...
Well placed POV, with the sun glare obsecured by the green leaves, yet, allow the glare over water.
Fine taken over the Caldera.
Have a nice weekend,

i think that is a table that everyone would like to sit drinking a beer and enjoying the beauty and the calmness of the place.Excellent presentation as the light and the colour management of the image.
Have a good weekend,Danos

Hi Krzysztof - Now this really tempts me to get on a plane. The shot is simple but you convey so much atmosphere; just to look at it is to dream. A romantic setting taken under very cleverly managed light. The tree trunk is nicely silhouetted against the brightness and the foliage just allows for some wonderful warm light to fall across the table. Oh to sit right here and enjoy a cold glass of wine while the sun sinks in the sky. Marvelous! Warm regards Rosemary

Krzysztof Witaj very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition table for three with a magnificent view, a place to rest and eat something. Very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and good Sunday.
All the best from southern Spain.

I can just imagine a breakfast with fresh, still warm bread, butter, olives, feta cheese and tomatoes at this table. I might just try that this March, when i visit my sister in Istanbul, though i doubt the weather will allow us to eat outside.
Thanks for this suggestive photo.

hi krzysztof. now, that's what i call a "lavish mood". the essence of kyklades is there: ravishing sunlight, wide open seascape and a simple table with those views... we haven't yet had enough of winter in turkey, nevertheless, this photo makes me yearn for warmer times.
ourania (50651) 2014-01-04 13:12
this light and atmosphere are really marvelous but also difficult to capture and convey in a photo. Your achievement is great in presenting us this place so naturally and giving us the opportunity to feel the magic of this hour. This point of view is wonderful and absolutely inviting. The seascape is overwhelmed by the light, you found a way to moderate its power and retain a fine colour palette. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Your image conveys perfectly the Mediterranean atmosphere of a quiet summer ending day. I notice that the tablecloth is in the colours of the Greek flag ! A simple table and three chairs make for a relaxed dining vibe, and the last rays of the setting sun give a beautiful golden glow to the scene. I wish I was sitting there right now, soaking up this unique atmosphere and listening to some fine soothing Greek music. Thanks for the dream.

Wow, the first thing that came to mind after the initial "Ahhhhhh" was "Oh, that is some serious difficult light to work against!" Gotta' give due credit for pulling it off, this is never an easy one to achieve. I like however that because the light source is bright and low, it sets a wonderful mood for this shot. The soft tone and the way it plays across the checkered tabletop is peaceful and inviting...come, have a seat and enjoy the simple life. I hear it calling me now, I'm on my way! :)
A simple scene, but one that conveys the ideology of the islands. As Brian mentioned, I think it does also carry some romanticism along with the setting. Great job controlling the exposure, a result and view to be envied. Hope you had wonderful holidays, all the best for 2014.
My friendliest regards,

wow, what a frame. Like the soft light on the table. Like the position of the tree just beside the table. Nice view from here. A nice place for enjoy the lunch and obviously for photography. Excellent shot. Tfs.

Un endroit agréable pour diner ou prendre simplement un verre, bien prise la soleil derrière l'arbre, une vue magnifique sur la mer aux teintes pastels
Romano46 (18472) 2014-01-05 4:08
la luce non era delle più favorevoli, ma il paesaggio davanti a te era straordinario e grazie alla tua perizia tecnica sei riuscito a superare gli ostacoli regalandoci un'altra bella veduta delle isole Cicladi, anche questa molto suggestiva ed invitante.
Ciao e buona domenica

I don't know if I could here without getting dizzy, the sense of height here is incredible. It seems like a mile down together silver sheen of the ater far below. A beautiful composition on this place, and a great idea to hide the glare of the sun behind the tree while still allowing the scene to enjoy its warm light and colors. I bet the owners of this restaurant would be very happy to be able to use this picture in an advertisement :)
All the best

Urokliwy zakątek i miejsce zapraszające do wyciszenia się i romantycznego spotkania, bardzo ładne światło i ciekawe zamglone tło

Witaj Krzysztof, zdecydowanie wole lato i ciepelko. Sliczna nastrojowa kompozycja. Potrzebna tylko lampka dobrego wina i kawka. Sliczna pocztowka. Bardzo mi sie podoba wykonanie. Super spokojne miejsce.
Serdecznie pozdrawiam, Barbara

You are right, simple but very nice scene, attractive view to the sea side. But what could get the three persons here? A cup of coffee or little bit Metaxa? ;))
Excellent photo! My congrats!

what a pretty corner with an exclusive view! Hope you took your time to enjoy a long drink and share it with your friends at that table:) Love the pastel tones of the sea and sky, the warm light is amazing.
Best wishes and have a great time!

Looks like a very nice place to have a meal and enjoy the view except I don't want the third chair. Good pov and nice details. Well done, tfs.
josepmarin (58359) 2014-01-09 0:54
this empty table under the subtle light of the late afternoon, invites us to sit and enjoy a romantic dinner, watching to the impressive view of the caldera.
I like this image, is very suggestive and offers us a great beauty, and I think that the play of shades and last sun rays adds a wonderful touch into the ensemble.
A great work.
My best wishes for 2014!

The area is lovely and the view is beautiful. This compound is well with the use of the shaft as a filter for sunlight. A great atmosphere that makes you want to travel.
Good weekend my friend!

je dirai même une table pour deux vu d'un côté intimiste peut être avec une vue sur la mer, ces rayons de soleil sur la nappe
